Farm Foundation Forum Tuesday to focus on Endangered Species Act, greater sage grouse

The Farm Foundation will host a forum from 9-11 a.m. (EDT) on Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on the Endangered Species Act, focusing on "how key elements of the Greater Sage-grouse effort, as well as other collaborative protection and preservation efforts, may reshape preservation work and the ESA in the future." The panel includes: Michael Bean, U.S. Department of the Interior; Alex Echols, Sand County Foundation; Patrick O'Toole, Ladder Ranch, and president of Family Farm Alliance; Brian Rutledge, Audubon Society; Jason Weller, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service; and David Willms, Wyoming Governor's Office.

There is no charge to attend the event, but registration is requested. The forum will also be available via audiocast. For those unable to attend in person or listen to the live audiocast, an audio file will be posted in the Forum Archives after the event. For more information or to register, click here.
